Marvel Exec confirms films planned through 2028

Captain America: The Winter Soldier lands in theaters, but Marvel Studios is hardly focused on just the here and now.

marvel-cinematic-universe-phase-3“It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope,” says Marvel Studioes Exec Kevin Feige in an Apr. 3 interview with Businessweek. “You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it.’”

The Marvel movieverse is setup in “Phases” closing with an Avengers film. Next summer’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron moves the studio from Phase 2 as it begins Phase 3. Feige reveals that this is hardly the end to their plans.

“They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028,” confirmed Feige, with the report revealing that the Marvel President’s office features a map of films going well into the next decade.

Winter Soldier is the middle of Phase 2 with Phase 3 set to include: Ant-Man, Thor 3, Captain America 3, Doctor Strange and another Avengers film.

Here’s the upcoming schedule as we know it:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy – August 1, 2014
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron – May 1, 2015
  • Ant-Man – July 17, 2015
  • Captain America 3 – May 6, 2016
  • Marvel Untitled – July 8, 2016
  • Marvel Untitled – May 5, 2017

The July 2016 date is increasingly likely to be Thor 3 with the 2017 date Doctor Strange.

So what’s after that: a new Hulk film starring Mark Ruffalo, Guardians of the Galaxy sequel if the film succeeds as well as sequels for Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and of course, another Avengers film.

Other franchises are being developed for television (e.g. Daredevil, The Defenders) but keep an ear out for Inhumans rumors.

It is indeed the era of Superhero films, so check out the rest of the Feige interview HERE
